Revere Sugar Refinery, Red Hook, Brooklyn
Revere Sugar Refinery,
Beard Street,
Red Hook, Brooklyn
December 2006

Now completely demolished, this complex of abandoned sugar refining buildings was once an iconic part of the Brooklyn waterfront. The massive sugar refinery dome was once used by sailors to guide themselves back to port in Red Hook. These photos were taken just before demolition began.
